Valentine’s Day is nearly upon us, but don’t panic if you still haven’t found a token of love for your beloved. Try one of our top 5 romantic gifts instead201_PB183_EVILEYE_DEEPRED&GOLD_HIGH

Halcyon Days

As one of only 14 companies to hold all three Royal Warrants and the only supplier of Objets d’Art, Halcyon Days holds itself to the highest standards of British artisan craftsmanship. Their website is full of inspired romantic gifts, each coming individually and beautifully packaged. Our favourite is this Red Evil Eye bracelet (£75), hand painted onto English enamel and out now to purchase online and in store.  



A personalised pizza

Nothing says I love you like a personalised chocolate pizza, or so the saying should go. A fail safe for special ladies and men alike, this irresistible delight is available for £14.99 from Fire Box.


Sipsmiths’ Juniper Gin

Sipsmith’s new Very Junipery Over Proof Gin (£37.95 per 70cl bottle), or the V.J.O.P, has been created to pay homage to the juniper berry, with gin as the key ingredient of course. Based on the brand’s award-winning London Dry Gin, Master Distiller Jared Brown has increased the proportion of Juniper in the recipe, creating a ‘Triple Juniper’ technique to produce the gin, which involves adding the ingredient to the liquid at three different stages. The result is a gin lover’s dream: A Junipery, bold gin that complements classic cocktails perfectly, particularly a Valentine’s Strawberry Negroni. Available from the Sipsmith website.


Valentine’s Propaganda

If you’re finding it hard to say how you really feel, a nice retro WWI style ‘You Are The Man’ tin (£4) from the Imperial War Museum shop should get the point across nicely. Perfect for history enthusiasts as much as for stylish home-makers, this little number makes for a charming, stylish and thoughtful Valentine’s gift.


Be my sweetheart

Romance is in the air this February at Megan’s, the deli-café-grill in the King’s Road. Celebrating Valentine’s not just for one day, but for the whole month, The Bakery at Megan’s will be introducing a romantic, quirky and tasty collection of cakes and treats baked on site for lovers, would-be lovers or just good food lovers. Named the ‘Crystal Heart Collection’, this special range is inspired by great love stories, and each order comes with an illustrated and detailed booklet for guests to enjoy over one of the delectable cakes.
